NAB took to Twitter early Monday morning to tell customers some of its services were unavailable.
We're currently experiencing login errors with the NAB Mobile Banking app and Desktop Internet Banking. We’re working to fix this as soon as possible. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Customers reported they were unable to transfer money from accounts or access the bank’s trading platform nabtrade, and businesses were unable to offer their customers card payments.
“Your [EFTPOS] terminal is down as well,” said one Twitter user earlier today. “I’m losing customers as they don’t want to use cash as a payment.”
One nabtrade customer on the outage tracker platform Downdetector said the “failure” of the platform caused trading losses for customers who paid “handsomely” for the use of platform.
At the time of publishing, NAB has not provided a reason for the outage.
NAB Group Executive of Personal Banking Rachel Slade published an apology on Twitter this afternoon and said some services had started to recover.
Our services are gradually recovering and we thank you for your patience. NAB Group Executive, Personal Banking, Rachel Slade has this message to share with you. pic.twitter.com/t3nqKFflaq
